How Does LED Teeth Whitening Work?

Dr Georges Dentel WhiteLED, or blue-light, technology for enhancing teeth whitening was first used in the USA in 1996.

This revolutionary technique, which is called photopolymerisation, has allowed the acceleration of the whitening process by speeding up the chemical reaction of the whitening gel and making the whole whitening process a lot more effective.

The LED-light technique was first used only by dentists for in-surgery whitening, but a few years later the first hand-held blue light devices were included in a couple of high quality, over-the-counter teeth-whitening kits for home use.

Over the last 15 years, thousands of people have successfully used LED whitening kits in the comfort of their home saving time and hundreds of pounds on dental fees.

In-Surgery Whitening in Seven Steps

When you visit your dentist for a whitening session, the process usually involves the following seven steps:

Step One: Your dentist will check the health of your teeth. If your teeth need one or two fillings, these will have to be fixed first. So, if you need your teeth whitened for a special occasion, you should pay a visit to your dentist well in advance.

Step Two: Your dentist will show you a shade chart, let you know your present shade and advise you on the optimum shade that can be achieved.

Step Three: Cheek retractors are going to be placed in your mouth for easier and safer application of the whitening gel.

Step Four: Your dentist will cover your lips with Vaseline and your gums with a special flowable composite in order to prevent sensitivity if the whitening gel comes in contact with them.

Step Five: Now that everything is ready, your dentist will apply the hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to your teeth. After a few minutes, the LED light will be shone over your teeth to activate the gel and accelerate the chemical reaction.

Step Six: This first phase will last about 10 minutes. Then the gel will be removed and the whole process will be repeated 3 or 4 more times, depending on how much stained your teeth are.

Step Seven: Your dentist will remove all traces of the whitening gel, the flowable composite and the cheek retractor, and ask you to rinse your mouth thoroughly.

After the in-surgery session, your dentist will most probably provide you with a set of mouth guards and gel, or a whitening pen, to perform a few more whitening sessions at home until your desired result is achieved.

An Alternative – Dr. George’s Whitening Care

For people who cannot afford the time or the money for a whitening session at the dentist’s, Dr. George’s Whitening Care can provide them with the same whitening results at the comfort of their home and in their spare time.

Dr. Georges Whitening Care kit comes with a Blue Light LED unit and customisable mouth trays that make the process comfortable while protecting your mouth and gums from gel leakage.

Each session lasts only 30 minutes and you will be able to enjoy significantly whiter teeth even after the first session.
